An episode of a syndicated bowling show from the mid-1950s. Not sure of the exact date of this episode (notice says 1955, but this is impossible given references to a TV show which debuted 1956). Some interesting camera angles in the show. Doesn't appear to have had its copyright renewed or it wasn't registered, so I presume it is OK to upload here. No ads intact.
